H&A President set to headline upcoming site selection conference

Jason Hickey, H&A’s President, will be leading a key discussion group at the upcoming Business Facilities LiveXchange event next week. The annual event, which brings together corporate real estate executives, economic development officials and other key leaders, will take place May 19-21 at the Westin Stonebriar in Frisco, TX.

Hickey will be leading a discussion, referred to as a Think Tank, on the step-by-step process of a site selection decision. The group will find themselves in a mock corporate boardroom as Hickey reviews all the aspects and considerations that go into the dynamics of determining where to locate an operation. In the end, the group will debate and evaluate a recommendation to a CEO based on what they learn from the discussion.
